As Wharton's sole undergraduate organization dedicated to energy, we strive to provide students with opportunities to learn the ins and outs of the energy industry. Our members' interests span the industry--from renewable energy finance to hydrocarbon production--so we empower our members to explore each aspect of the space and give them the resources to pursue career opportunities in energy. Because of its niche, WUEG attracts a diverse group of students and thrives as a community grounded in mutual learning, collaboration, and innovation.
